Book Title: The Unknown City: the lives of poor and working-class young adults

Author: Michelle Fine and Lois Weis

Book Description:

 This is the book that inspired me to pursue my PhD in sociology of education. A friend suggested I attend a book talk by one of the authors, Lois Weis, who later became my advisor and mentor. My own work with white working-class teenagers is inspired by this work.
